Saintly Quintessence is a rare upgrade material which can only be found in the Umbral Realm. This is the realm your character goes to when they die or use the Umbral Lamp to visit.
You can get Saintly Quintessence after using Soulflay on Umbral Bellies. To use Soulflay, bring out the Umbral Lamp, lock on to an Umbral Belly and charge it with R2/RT. You’ll get a Sanguinarix after.
The Saintly Quintessence can only be used to upgrade your Sanguinarix so there’s no point saving them for anything else. This upgrade material also cannot be dropped or shared between players in co-op. Though upgrades made to your Sanguinarix will be carried over to New Game+ playthroughs.
